May 2 morning media roundup: focus on D.N.C., delegates, and Dr. Dean

As long as I am on the topic, here is some news about Dr. Dean, the D.N.C., and its relatively poor fundraising performance. I am not in total agreement with the author's analysis of WHY the D.N.C. is raising only half what the R.N.C. is. See why you think. Meanwhile, Dr. Dean continues to favor disenfranchisement - now of the automatic delegates. (Huh? I thought rules are rules. Automatic delegates having a real say is the point of the rules)

A columnist in Orlando, Florida on Dr. Dean, the national Democratic Party, and the party convention.

One commentator's view of the importance of superdelegate autonomy. (That is, if Dr. Dean would be so kind as to let them vote.)

An item about automatic delegates (informally known as "superdelegates") in Colorado. A very interesting read about one South Carolina county's upcoming meeting/convention to select delegates to go to Denver.

On the relationship between candidates, money they give to automatic delegates, and who seemingly does not need money to make up his or her mind.

As for Dr. Dean, he's heading to Arizona to raise money.

“Our assumption was that the nomination would go to who had the lead among pledged delegates,” said Pierce, an Obama supporter.

MMMMMMMMMMM! Did he not get the memo? That Assumption is the MOTHER of all SCREWUPS?

Because it failed to do anything about Iraq and is now disenfranchising voters and superdelegates. Yet he has the nerve to send me emails.
